Luminosity

Luminosity Playing Cards is a custom deck with a story. Created by Jody Eklund and written by Ricky Cassford. The deck reveals an allegory depicting the age-old conflict between good and evil. Visually inspired by Norse mythology, we have created a rich narrative representative of a deeper spiritual meaning that is brought to life through this set of unique and custom-illustrated playing cards.

THE STORY

The Lucent Lands were once a utopia of peace and power. Safe behind guarded borders, every creature that came out of the Cave of Creation lived in a haven of prosperity and wealth, provided by the eldest among them, Ahendhal. The kingdom of The Lucent Lands could not be overcome from beyond its borders, but that was before The Fracture that came from within. The Fracture split more than the kingdom, it divided families. As brother fought brother, reinforced by the armies of their respective houses, Ahendhal enslaved them both and banished the treacherous brother along with his faction into the lower part of the land, which to this day is called the Shadowlands. The Faction War raged on for nearly a century with no end in sight. Then a new creature came from the Cave of Creation, which changed the course of the Faction War. This creature was prized by Ahendhal as the pinnacle of creation, and was prophesied to rule over the factions. This enraged Kapshunis, the King of the Shadowlands, and inspired him to change his tactics to those of vindictiveness and malice toward Ahendhal's prize.

Gorgeous

Starting with the tuck case, the soft touch grey background with light embossing of a gold pattern and lettering and symbols is attractive. I admit that compared to many tuck cases, this one is a touch subdued although still classy. I prefer the cards to be nicer than or on par with the tuck case anyhow, and that is certainly the case here. The back design is complex and attractively colored in shades of gold and brown with a thin white border. The thick, darker lines make the cards look simpler than they are, and contribute to an overall elegant look at first glance that rewards close inspection. Everything on the faces is custom, from the font to the drops from the suit and value in the corners, to the pips and courts. There are almost no missteps, although I find that the corner tracings/watermarks are a touch too strong and make it harder than necessary to make out the value. Maybe these designs would have been better served either fainter, or placed in the empty corners. The suit symbols below the value are a touch small as well, especially for older eyes like mine. The aces and courts are simply beautiful and anything I wrote about them wouldn't do them justices unless I used the necessary 1000 words per picture. They handle as expected for a card deck printed by the USPCC. I wish there were a 4.5 rating available as these do not quite achieve perfection in my eyes, so since a previous reviewer gave them a 5, I will give them a 4. But it truly is a beautiful card deck for a collection
